Dominant Gloucester thrash Harlequins

Gloucester produced a stunning display to claim a 29-7 bonus-point win over Harlequins at The Twickenham Stoop on Sunday to boost their Premiership play-off hopes. 

In a match pitting fourth against third, it was the lower-placed visitors who prevailed courtesy of a dominant performance against a Quins side who had won five on the bounce. 

Johan Ackermann's men, beaten by Bristol last time out, were 17-0 up at the break as Jason Woodward and Ruan Ackermann touched down.

Second-half scores from Tom Marshall and Danny Cipriani ensured the extra point, with a late Nathan Earle try providing scant consolation for a Quins outfit who were well below their best.

Gloucester are now just two points behind their hosts in the table, having used their game in hand to move seven clear of the chasing pack.
